At Dignity U Wear, we don’t just appreciate our volunteers—we couldn’t run our organization without them.
Individuals and volunteer groups are truly the life blood of Dignity U Wear. They sort incoming clothing to ready it for distribution to people in need. Volunteers process the incoming inventory, providing 95% of the time and labor necessary to accomplish the task.
As we continue to expand, our need for additional volunteers will increase. The reality is that we couldn’t exist without their good work and generous support and we will be forever grateful for their assistance.
Individuals and groups of all types are welcome to join us to volunteer. Dignity U Wear is a working warehouse and as such, volunteers should dress comfortably and closed toe shoes are a must. Regretfully, we cannot host volunteers under the age of 16.
In 2015, volunteers from corporations, colleges, volunteer organizations and churches donated nearly 6,000 hours. These 1,300 individual volunteers helped us to distribute $1 million worth of clothing each month. We love our volunteers!
